ready for a battle for the office speech and now the financing costs. the street. police once again. protesters in the u.s. town of missouri. extended into a second night. at the first trucks from a russian humanitarian convoy is finally at the ukrainian checkpoint ready to go here and international we get inside the truck to see what it is exactly they have inside. and with the. set to expire. suffering here on the network we report on a. particular. being held for a month and is really to. live
from moscow on a monday morning this is aussie international with me wrong thank you for joining us today and we begin with the violence in the u.s. city of missouri. again short rounds of tear gas against protesters rallying over the killing of a black teenager by an officer last week there are also reports that demonstrators of throw molotov cocktails in response. has now come into effect for a second night following more than a week of demonstrations there are also calling for the police to stop their crackdown on the peaceful protests across. joining us live good to see you just off the one in the morning your time the curfew is in effect the latest scene
. already we're just a little over one hour into the curfew and as we speak everybody just seems to be holding their breath to see what happened because just hours ago here gas is being fired to the extent where we have not seen this entire week even though police have been using tear gas and rubber bullets throughout the last seven days since these clashes began last sunday but certainly tonight has been quite unprecedented downtown and reuse really just kenyatta hectic situation where children and the locals were scared as including journalists we know that two journalists were arrested and lee to be released for us when we were reporting at the scene where the clashes had been taking place police were saying the media has to move out of the way because we were in the middle of a crossfire otherwise we would get shot and a group of journalists had to obviously get out of their way in just a very erotic scene just hours ago and last night when the first night of the
curfew took place the scene was just kind of chaotic again tear gas and clashes break out in a little more than an hour since the curfew was imposed and so far it's quiet on the streets for now but we have to remember that throughout this entire week of violence has prevailed on the streets between protesters and police many people here really don't understand why these heavily militarized tactics are being used against protesters because from what we're hearing on the ground despite the force of the mounted cocktail being thrown some reports suggest that this is really an excuse and not exactly the case that we need a reason to use these heavily militarized tactics to tackle protesters because from what we've seen there have been times when tear gas was used against protesters and they in fact were being quite peaceful so all of the first seven seven days now into this madness following the death of unarmed eighteen year old michael brown killed by multiple gunshots by a police officer this community is asking for justice and accountability they're not getting answers to the questions that their friend this man. on bravo here on
the ground where he is in no. way did he how about the rattle throughout the night with the curfew the extended curfew now sixty four minutes into it. and i thought he is going to live and focus on missouri keep an eye on it we'll keep an eye on you as well thanks very much well other protesters claim the police aggression against focus and demonstrate is severely out of proportion vehicles have been deployed to quell the unrest the images from one of the rallies show an officer wearing some pretty serious combat gear in fact his quick includes a military helmet a time to cool goebbels as well weapon of choice possibly a grenade launcher or to a gas launch of that also could shoot many little bean bags out of there as well and on his hip he's got a pair of big old knives that's all to mark mason an activist from the occupy movement he's worried about the militarization of the police. what we have now on the streets these are not police these are paramilitary troops you go to central
america and sure going to find the same thing i cannot over emphasize that i'm old enough to see a very very frightening transition in the united states where the militarization of the police is a movement by. the owners of this country the last year alone in two thousand and thirteen one year the u.s. pentagon donated more than four hundred million dollars almost a half a billion dollars of new material great equipment to police departments in the united states that's one year old lone almost half a billion dollars of material they are not trained to use this material they don't know what they're doing with it and we should not have paramilitary troops not on the streets ferguson and not in the streets of central america either this is clear violent state suppression of dissent. the first of almost
three hundred russian trucks destined for eastern ukraine are at the border checkpoint waiting to be let through it's taken three days numerous huddles a great deal of uncertainty to kiev to finally accept that the convoy was in fact carrying only aid and not weapons as you have were saying before the vehicles undergo the very last inspection rif an option and jumps inside the back of one to see what it is exactly in carried around in the big rig. these sixteen tracks from the russian humanitarian convoy others first to reach the russian ukrainian border they are now parked here literally meters away from donetsk is right in a border checkpoint earlier today the cargo these trucks are carrying has only been inspected by the representatives of the international red cross and now we're going to do the same i'm going to pick up the truck and really is going to open it for us . military to see here's the truck is on.
it's about the last. reason we're simply carrying it. wasn't gone by our book wait. it's buckwheat and their bags are just in case anyone suspects it's guns and munition or something else like weapons of mass destruction. it is tells me that each bag is fifty kilograms and there are one hundred sixty bags here which means a tool to hold. eight tons and this is he tells me the maximum or what they struck can carry where these trucks are now ready to cross the border to deliver its humanitarian cargo to those in eastern ukraine who are in desperate need the driver as we have been able to speak to here told me that there will be two more inspections at the checkpoint from the russian and from the ukrainian side
and after that security will be the major challenge for these tracks as the convoy is supposed to travel through regions in eastern ukraine where clashes are still continuing right now r.t. russian here kryten border. the convoy is heading for the struggling population of eastern ukraine right back continue to suffer the nonstop attacks they are the ukrainian army is aiming to sever connections between the two largest cities don't yet see and lugansk here in order to do so though they're trying to take control over dozens of small the whole towns peppered along this main route here now if we can bring you up to. right there anti-government fighters managed to destroy one of the rocket launchers the army uses to shell that area also in right there would also come under heavy fire many houses razed to the ground and all of you believe though the most important town is my key for right there in the middle because of its proximity to torne yes it's basically as close as you can get to the city
without actually being in the city itself now fighting there doesn't stop even at night and half of the town has been extremely badly damaged and if the army succeeds don yet school be completely blocked from the only she mentor tearing corridor all that's left of the city's health already has already warned people that the water supply is being cut off there's no electricity in most districts and delivery food and drinking water only arrive once every several days and on top of the bombs and rockets continue raining down killing dozens and destroying what little people have left. who. is ensure that with those. but it's just. for the for for this this is good like it was. nothing else for trying to that's the trouble that i was not just going to the
military when i was i was actually a long so very you know you're only allowed in the. cities to move. meantime on the diplomatic front some progress has been made in an attempt to resolve the ukrainian crisis after a two month hiatus top diplomats of a germany france ukraine and russia have been given direct talks another try it's all going on in berlin and noughties peter all of a has details well after five hours of what seemed to of being quite tough negotiations at times we heard from frank walter steinmeier the german foreign minister saying that some progress had been made he talked about what is being discussed in this meeting between the foreign ministers of germany france. and russia now he said that they were looking at how to up border security from the russian ukrainian borders also that they spent a lot of time discussing the ongoing humanitarian disaster in the east of the
country in the ended by saying this all of the foreign ministers will be reporting back to their relevant to their own presidents and heads of government and that they would be pushing for more negotiations in the future in terms of what we've heard from other representatives at these meetings the ukrainian foreign minister pablo claim can he tweeted as he was driving away that it had been five hours of very tough negotiations but that it would take perhaps five times not before any real steps were taken towards a peaceful diplomatic solution to the crisis in the country and with regards to russia so again allow for over now he's going to be meeting with journalists here in central perlin he's going to be running through what he took away from this meeting it does seem though that there have been some steps taken forward but there's a long way to go before any real framework for peace is put in place and these negotiations look set to continue for a long while yet. reporting that now we are expecting the russian foreign minister
started to laugh it off to give a live news conference in the next hour there's hope for you on the progress reached during the talks about and do stay with us for that if you can in the meantime on our website auti dot com you can find out how kiev doesn't seem all that ball that over the whereabouts of a russian photo journalist missing in the country for two weeks now. and still to come here on the program one of the international the u.s. steps up its offensive in iraq american the warplanes support kurdish forces in an assault on the country's largest. that's while the british prime minister calls for even more involvement in the fight against jihad. and they say lightning never strikes the same place twice but that's only if you don't have one of these machines right there that is able to domesticate.

sunny and i danny says the british arming in support of rebels in neighboring syria that's been forefront inspiring on the shihad it's in iraq this is something. the british government should have thought about. when it started funding arming the various groups in syria said to you over ten billion pounds were spent about fifteen billion dollars and some estimate psyches. and within the context of syria would figures are not available but certainly britain. tens of millions of pounds on the. top to destabilize syria basically and make it open to all these terrorist organizations these terrorist organizations were created used used by by the west some factors including including britain. and as the
